Welcome to our CaringBridge site. We've created it to keep friends and family updated. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement during this time when it matters most. The adventure of Taylor twins 2.0 started when we found out this pregnancy was twins again in Sept 2015. I had a lot of morning sickness, but overall the first few months of this pregnancy were pretty uneventful. At 16 weeks we found out that Baby A is a girl and Baby B is a boy. Just in the last couple weeks we have decided that baby A will be Sophia Grace and baby B will be Maximus Allen. I had been bragging about how this was the best pregnancy I had ever had. We had our last regular Dr check up on Jan 13th...and everything looked great. Actually no concerns at all they were all very confident that I was be back in 4 weeks for my next appointment..well on Friday Jan 29th, Sophia had different ideas for us. It was a normal Friday morning, Abbie and Isaac (our 7 year old twins) were at school and I was cuddling on the couch with Emilie (our 5 year old) watching the episode of Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood when he gets a new baby sister (ironically). I got up from the couch and felt like I had wet my pants. I knew right away that something wasn't right. I called the Dr right away because the previous two days I had been talking to her about how dizzy I had been feeling and just not feeling good. Instead of sending me to the her office they decided I needed to go to triage instead. After a short amount a time and a few tests I was admitted to Sanford. I had been on at home bed rest with Abbie and Isaac so that is what I expected was going to happen this time. BOY WAS I WRONG! The dr's were talking about the iv meds i would be on for a couple days, so I said "so i'll be here the weekend" and the dr said "OH NO HONEY! you are here until you have those babies!" I can not imagine what the look on my face was...and i missed the next few things that were said to be but it has all been repeated several times. So this is what our plan looks like...I am at Sanford for an undetermined amount of time. We are currently 26 weeks along, so these babies need to stay in my belly and cook a while longer. So far it has been uneventful (and that is the way we want it) they monitor the babies everyday and I have been on antibiotics to prevent infection. But the second there is sign of infection, or the babies are distressed they will be here and in the NICU. 2 days more, or 2 weeks more or even 2 months more would be the best! The latest they will let me be pregnant is March 24th. My goal is St Patrick's Day ;) Visitors are welcome!
